Treaty of Paris
January 12, 2010
JBTV – Chicago, IL
Photos by:  Tasha Schalk

Last week we brought you the news about the release of the new EP from Treaty of Paris titled “Currents”.  On the release date the band celebrated with a special performance at JBTV in Chicago. (JBTV is available online via podcast subscription on the Apple iTunes store and at youtube.com/jbtvonlinedotcom).  TWRY’s resident Chicagoan and photographer Tasha Schalk was on hand to celebrate with the band and document everything.  Here’s a bit from her blog:

“For those not in the Chicago area, JBTV is a brodcasted, Emmy-winning program that is dedicated to local (and sometimes not-so-local) music. It’s a show that has kept true to it’s roots – totally non-corporate, and it just celebrated its 25 anniversary. It’s basically an institution for Chicago music lovers. Walking around the studio is like walking through a museum. Everything on the walls and on the tables are signed… even some chairs are signed!

Imagine my happiness when I was invited to take photos for Treaty of Paris’ performance on there just a few weeks ago! This was the fourth night of what I dubbed my “Treaty of Paris week,” as I shot a rehearsal, their EP release, promos, and then their JBTV appearance. Luckily, I love these guys, otherwise I might have been sick of them. It really is a testament to their performance that I wasn’t sick of them. I could have watched them a few more nights, in fact.”
